years ago then candidate obama promised us so very much, but he has fallen so far short of what he promised. as senator portman just said, he promised that he'd have a post partisan presidency, but it's been the most partisan i've seen with decisiveness and bitterness and division and demonization. hallmarks of his presidency. he said he'd focus on creating jobs, but instead he focused on creating obama care, which killed jobs. he said he would cut the deficit in half, instead it's double what it was. he said he'd get unemployment by now down to 5.2%, and we learned today it ticked up to 7.9%. that's 9 million jobs short. those are real americans. can't find work, 23 million in all can't find work or can't find work that's up to their needs. can only five part-time job. this is a critical time. the president was a president who took office with the economy as the number one challenge, and you know, he's got a higher unemployment today than when he took office. think of that. >> the president is also scheduled to speak this hour in ohio. we'll bring that to you live also. the story

is measured in achievements. and four years ago, candidate obama promised to do so very much. but he's fallen so very short. he promised to be a post partisan president. but he became the most partisan, blaming, attacking, dividing. he said he was going to focus on creating jobs. and instead, he focused on obama care, which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learn that it's actually 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment today is higher than on the day barack obama took office. he promised that he would propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather, he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for his obama care. he said he was going to lower health insurance premiums for the average family by $2,500 a year by now. and actually, they are now $3,000 higher for an average family. and gasoline

measured in achievements and four years ago candidate obama promised to do so very much. but he has fallen so very short. he promised to be a post-partisan president. but he became the most partisan, blaming, attacking, dividing. he said he would focus on creating jobs. instead he focused on obamacare which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half. then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned it actually is.9%. that is nine million jobs what short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment is higher today than on the day barack obama took office.
